If you liked this show, you should follow Adventures in Talmud.

The Talmud begins: "From when may one recite the sh'ma in the evening."  The Rabbis ask: "why begin first with the evening shema, let us begin with the morning shema."  They answer: "it is from the precedent of the creation of the world, where is is written, 'it was evening, it was morning, one day.'" 

In this show, we will explore some fascinating connections between the first few lines of the Talmud, and the first few lines of the Tanach (Bible).
